comment What does gluten “do” in baking?
+1 Thanks for your comprehensive answer. I missed the other post you linked to when searching for this stuff, probably because it didn't have the tags I looked out for.

comment Why do scrambled/fried eggs stick less when cooked with butter instead of oil?
Thanks for this, I suspect you may be right re. the "walk away" bit. I'll report our mileage. Re. TV, I currently only get Food Network UK via satellite.

comment The difference between green, red and yellow bell peppers
Appeal-wise, if I did a tomato and lettuce salad and wanted to use peppers with it, I'd go for the yellow one first :)

comment Will botulism growing in my home-canned vegetables pop the lid?
@BaffledCook German wikipedia gives that temperature, but I didn't find it in the english one. The article link given above says 240F, which is about 116°C I think.

comment How to remove bits of egg shell from a cracked egg?

comment Why do scrambled/fried eggs stick less when cooked with butter instead of oil?
@rfusca Good point. I never actually tried using oil myself, because I don't like "oily" eggs and prefer the taste that using butter adds to them. But I'll persuade my wife to use butter next time, then we'll see :)

comment Why add pasta water to pasta sauce?
Looks as if the question is in the title, and the answer is in the body.

comment What is the critical ratio of eggs to potatoes between an egg salad and a potato salad?
I'm with @matthias on this one, if I'd put a potato in my egg salad I wouldn't think of it as an egg salad anymore.
